What difference does it make?

The independent evaluation of the work of the Children's University has been undertaken by 'Leadership for Learning - The Cambridge Network', led by Professor John MacBeath of the University of Cambridge. The first two annual evaluation reports evidence the value of CU provision to children's lives and pay tribute to the CU's "propitious and encouraging beginning". The formative approach to evaluation has been integral to developments of the CU, most particularly in Professor MacBeath's contributions to the development of the CU's quality assurance processes. The third evaluation, published in 2011, focuses on impact on individual children, in particular in relation to attainment, progress and attendance and was supported by Fischer Family Trust.

The CU evaluation reports are available on the Media and Publications page.
